Local Law sets out requirements for animal enclosures, how animals must be controlled in public places, and when certain animals can be declared dangerous.
Local Law also sets out what Council can do if you don’t comply.
For example, under the local law:
- you must clean up your animal’s faeces in a public place
- animals must be contained in a proper enclosure
- if there are koalas on your land, you must keep your dog tethered in its enclosure between sunset and sunrise
- you must not allow your animal to cause a nuisance
- it is an offence for your animal to attack or cause fear to another person or animal.
Local Law also enables Council to set up dog off leash areas in the region.
